ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction Reanimated on Silver Screen

Zombies have been all-the-rage these past couple of years. We’ve seen remakes of classic zombie films, tips for surviving a zombie apocalypse, and even anti-zombie equipment available for purchase. With that said, yet another zombie movie is in the works—this time being reanimated from a comic book corpse into a silver screen banshee. ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction (why do zombie movies always have to have some underlying political commentary?), a comic book written by Underworld screenwriter Kevin Frevioux, has been picked up by Benderspink for big screen treatment. On paper it sounds like a neat idea for yet another zombie movie:

“ZMD is the story of a new government weapons program that drops zombies, designed to be photosensitive and dissolve by a set time, into war zones at night to destroy the enemy population. But after one fails to self-destruct in the Middle East, a team of elite soldiers must enter hostile territory to stop a growing zombie army.”

It might be too cliché and not transparent enough with its political commentary, but zombie-flick fans will probably eat this one up. As long as the zombies don’t eat them first. (Har har, see what I did there?)
